Oxygen – DAN First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries

DAN First Aid (Oxygen) for Scuba Diving Injuries Provider Course was designed to fill the void in oxygen first aid training available for the general scuba diving public. Mermaids Dive Center Pattaya like to operate this DAN course (and any that can make us safer divers).

The DAN First Aid course represents entry level training designed to educate the general diving (and qualified non-diving) public in recognizing possible dive related injuries and providing emergency oxygen first aid while activating the local emergency medical services (EMS) and/or arranging for evacuation to the nearest available medical facility. In DAN´s most recent dive accident record, less than 33% of injured divers received emergency oxygen in the field. Few of those received oxygen concentrations approaching the recommended 100%. DAN recommend that all divers be qualified to provide 100% oxygen in the field to those injured in a dive accident.
